Brooklyn Tech Triangle

Helping Brooklyn transition a Tech Triangle into an Innovation Coastline

NYU Tandon is home to a dynamic and diverse community that's raising the bar for tech in major ways.

Brooklyn Bridge

Watch out, Silicon Valley.

Brooklyn is the fastest growing hub of technology in the country. What started out as the Tech Triangle has burgeoned into an entire Innovation Coastline, radiating from the waterfront and encompassing the borough and all of New York City.

And where tech and innovation reside, you will find NYU's Tandon School of Engineering.

At MetroTech Center in Downtown Brooklyn, you’ll find classrooms, faculty labs, and a well-equipped MakerSpace, where if you can dream it, you can prototype it. Just across the way, you’ll see 370 Jay Street, the newly renovated former MTA headquarters, where Tandon’s Center for Urban Science and Progress has already opened, and plans are in the works to relocate several Tandon departments, including Computer Science and Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Integrated Digital Media. The building will be home, as well, to programs from other NYU schools that align with Tandon’s focus on engineering and applied sciences, making 370 Jay a major locus of university-wide innovation and invention.

With our New York City-designated Augmented and Virtual Reality Lab at the Brooklyn Navy Yard and our network of Future Labs — entrepreneurial hubs dedicated to DigitalUrban, and Veteran-owned startups — we’re helping make the borough we call home a mecca for the world’s most forward-thinking, entrepreneurial, and creative people. 

Born anywhere and made in Brooklyn, right here at NYU Tandon.


At NYU Tandon, we know progress is made faster and problems are tackled more effectively when academic, public, and private institutions join forces.

We’re proud to partner with several fine groups to achieve our common goals: making our city — and the whole world — a safer, healthier, more sustainable, better connected, place.   

NYC Media Lab

NYC Media Lab is a public-private partnership launched by the New York City Economic Development Corporation dedicated to driving innovation and ultimately job growth in media and technology by facilitating collaboration between the City’s universities and its companies. The consortium is comprised of New York City Economic Development Corporation, NYU, School of Visual Arts, Columbia University, The New School, CUNY, IESE, and Pratt Institute. 

Things to See and Do in Brooklyn

Nicknamed “the borough of neighborhoods” for its many diverse and distinctive enclaves, you’ll find that Brooklyn is a unique and exciting place that lends itself to endless exploring. The School of Engineering is within walking distance from some of the world’s best art, music, food, and shops, and only a quick subway ride or walk across the Brooklyn Bridge into Manhattan.

Brooklyn, like Manhattan, is both truly global and truly American with its entrepreneurial roots and magnet-like attraction for ambitious dreamers, talented upstarts, sophisticated jetsetters, and academic trailblazers.
